Case: Young-Gibson v. The Board of Education of the City of Chicago, 2011 IL App (1st) 103,804, --- N.E.2d ----, 2011 WL 4579597 (Ill.App. 1 Dist., 9/30/2011).
Date: Friday, September 30, 2011
The school board properly followed procedural requirements of Sections 34-8.3(a), (b), and (c) of School Code (Section 34 applies to Chicago Public Schools). Those sections apply to the removal of principals for schools on probation. The school board's decision to remove the Plaintiff as a principal was not against manifest weight of evidence.
